There are some things that I think I can’t live without. When I run I’ve become a custom to having my Nike+ and my music. I used to run with my iPhone in my hand until my husband bought me this as a gift.
My vacation is getting closer. And the count down has begun. We are going on vacation soon. Ahhhhhhhh. But there’s still work to be done.
If you didn’t know already, I’ve JUST discovered Quest Bars from Quest Nutrition. They also make other protein products and this week I am testing and reviewing most of their flavors and products. If you want to know everything about Quest Nutrition, there protein bars, pasta and PEANUT BUTTER CUPS! Check them out HERE. If you want to enter my Quest bar giveaway read more!
I have to give him credit. He was persistent. I was inspired.
I was working today from home. I was setup at my kitchen table. The rain was coming down in buckets. I guess that’s what Spring brings us. And I must admit the greenery that has sprung up in my yard in the past week has been worth it. It’s a lush green paradise out there.
I’m a numbers girl. I’ve said it before. You’ve seen it. People at work come to me when they need numbers. Measuring can be a good thing. It can show us patterns and can help us correlate certain behaviors to certain results. But beware of the illusion of success when you obtain a number or the actual thrill of obtaining a number.
Humility is not often seen in people these days. I don’t like saying that. But I’ve found it to be true. There is so much focus on proving one selves ability that we lose sight of our objective. When you seek the approval of others by trying to prove your way is best you actually move farther away from believing yourself. Because if you were content in yourself you could sit still and humbly contemplate your next kind move.
To be or not to be… that is the questions. oh yeah no, today I’m asking is it better to walk or run. I’ve always LOVED to walk. I love hiking and I could walk forever. When I was obese I avoided walking anywhere. Once on a cruise I was so out of shape I opted not to leave the ship at a port because I didn’t want to walk to the venues. I knew I need to change then.
I’m keeping mine but my husband is giving his away! And you could win it. It is lightly used but almost perfect. If you are a regular reader you know my husband is a perfectionist. This Fuel Band is in perfect condition, it is a Black, M/L size. It is a great way to track your steps, calories, fuel points, tell the time and connect to Nike+. ENTER HERE.
I saw a quote today that was so spot on I’m going to let it stand on its own as my post for today.
Yes I had a mammogram today. Can you tell? I normally wouldn’t use the word Boobies. Even though I do live with a nine year old, it’s not a word I use regularly. But I was thinking this afternoon that since I like to write about something important each day, something that is on my mind, I decided to write about Boobies.
So many of you know that I like to prepare my own food and eat whole foods most of the time. I cook everyday for my family. It’s a large commitment and not easy for someone who really if I didn’t have to feed others would be quite boring in the food arena. I don’t know how others do it? Go through that first year after weight loss surgery cooking for a family.
Yesterday I watched the Whistler disassemble his favorite scooter. Did I intervene? No. Why? Because I truly believe you need to figure things out yourself. You need to have a problem and a passion to fix it. And if you do it yourself then you’ve GOT it!
If you’ve been listening to all my Quest Nutrition reviews then you may just want to pass this one up. But if you want to hear about the Quest Nutrition Peanut Butter Cups then come on inside, they are YUMMY!
Oh boy what a fun day it was today! I got to sift through which Quest Nutrition bars I was going to try today! Clark over at Quest Nutrition sent me a box full of goodies to try and it arrived last night!! I was going to try and work through all of the different products and bar flavors this week and share my thoughts on each of them with you in one post BUT I’ve decided to tell you as I go along because I just can’t keep the excitement to myself AND and the best part is there will be a GIVEAWAY!!!! So why not start that NOW.
I can’t even believe the month of May is gone! Where did it go? I am so warmed by the many readers that comment on my site each day. This month I saw many new Facebook followers and many new blog post subscribers. What I love about this is that I can continue to have fun giving away things monthly. If you all keep commenting I’ll keep giving my favorite things away.
It was an amazing long weekend. The Whistler proclaimed it my husbands Birthday weekend. He had a birthday poster, a planned schedule and surprises! There were no big parties or gifts but there was a lot of love and attention and isn’t that the best way.
Vacation is fast approaching and I’d be a liar if I didn’t say I’m constantly dreaming about it. I can not wait to be at the beach. To have nothing to do. To wield away the time.
My smile has been coming back. I was at the office yesterday which had me out of the house. I found my long commute freeing and my music which always plays in my car made me happy. But I think the biggest positive was I was back into the gym!
